Duo Haertel Wascher

Duo Haertel Wascher (AUT)Hermann Haertel and Simon Wascher do what they grew up with: traditional music - yodels, lenders, Styrian dances, Schleunige - played in the here and now, not because it is old, but in spite of it: improvised music of the present. This traditionally two-part music is rich in ornamentation and full of surprises, sky high cheering, furious, heart-warming. Yodlers, countrymen, Styrian dances, Schleunige on a par with the rest of the world. "Tanz", their first CD was released in 2012, the second will follow this year.
